Metal-Ceramic Composites Prepared through In Situ Decomposition of Transition Metal Nitrides
Co/ZnO and Ni/Al2O3 composites were prepared by in-situ decomposition of CoNx and NiNx during sintering, using CoNx/ZnO and NiNx/Al2O3 mixtures synthesized through an in-situ nitridation method as the starting powders. It was found that these composites showed a very uniform microstructure with metal particles homogeneously distributed among matrix grains. The microstructure and properties were tentatively studied.
